Yes, I figured you of all people would be honorable about it. That was the hard one. Now that you've shown your stuff, care to blank your two messages and let the truly knowledgeable get credit for it? :)

My bad! Did YOU really do it straight up? I couldn't be sure to name a set list from my all time fav shows for crying out loud!!?

BTW, I really am serious; are you implying from memory, not having listened to it in the past week or two, not having looked at the show here at the LMA, you actually KNEW both of these?

Oh, uh--NO WAY! I knew WMDead was one, and I picked May; used the alleged "secret" only to confirm...I am taking full credit! (sorry just realize you said "both messages", only blanked the one...do you really think anyone else would not know about it and use it?).

I think that's fair...

I remembered the easy one (which you too should be able to get without help), but I'd never even heard about the show you cite till I found it using precisely the method you used to confirm. And lest that seem hypocritical, I don't ever claim credit for knowing all the things I ask about in my trivia questions. As the question-poser, I'm just trying to provide entertainment. My thinking is that there are plenty of triviata that I don't know myself but that at least one member of the prodigious LMA braintrust does. Heck, if I stuck with stuff that I knew myself, stratocaster alone would probably be able to answer all of my questions without half trying!

So do I understand you to say that you thought...hmmm...Workingman's Dead...hmmm...May 1970...then used setlists to search for May 1970 shows that had all tracks? If so, I'm thinking you deserve half-credit anyway, especially since your first intuition turned out to be correct.

Yep, that's what I did...you think anyone else will, without having listened to it lately, looked at the set list here, etc? It was only cause I listened to May so much about a month ago...Isn't that "cheating" just as much--or just luck?

Way too hard my friend, way too hard...just saying.

Hey, I said it was a toughie! The reason I think you deserve at least partial credit is that your first approach requires substantial intuition to narrow the scope of the search, or it would have taken forever.

Everyone else appears to be off watching baseball games this afternoon, but I insist there are people who will consider the easy one to be easy--as will you, once someone reminds you of it.

Ha! Not so...I just checked 12 diff ones...no dice, unless "you know what" is not matching the names correctly, which I fear...

No--it's there, but your resource doesn't title every track quite right, so you're not finding it. Has it really not occurred to you yet, using your encyclopedic knowledge and good old common sense?

Sorry, Lou--I like trivia games in which it won't be this much work...really, I was serious about not knowing a set list from a single fav show of mine...even most of the 68s! It's just not something stored up there...and I don't know all the albums, except the ones I already tried.

Now, if you want a complete guess, I was thinking AmBea from fall of 70, but Oper/TilMorn were done too infrequently...And, for the first one, GRoad is too rare...likewise, WBotBaby...so, that takes out the early era, and you're on your own!

I was able to rule out Aoxomoxoa right away, both b/c of Rosemary and What's Become. 4-5-69 has all of the other tracks.

I thought AmBeaut might do it, but it doesn't even come close.

I was right in thinking that Wake was promising, but figured Let Me Sing would kill it. Actually Here Comes Sunshine is what's missing from both 9-15 and 9-17-73, which are two of the three shows that come closest. 10-30-73 has all but Here Comes Sunshine.

We Trip doesn't come as close as I'd thought it might (the times they were playing The Golden Road basically didn't overlap with when they were playing Morning Dew), but we're missing so many set lists from that era that who really knows?

Can anyone guess what other three studio albums had all but one track played in the same concert, and can anyone name one or more of those concerts?
